The two days we spent at GK's Riverview Homestay were among the very best of our two week trip to southern India. Situated right on a rice field in the midst of a village of canals and rivers, the homestay provides a wonderful base from which to explore a unique way of life. What made the experience even more special was the hospitality we received from our kind and charming hosts, George and Dai. George responded quickly to our email inquiries. Dai prepared delicious Keralan food for us, and she, her mother and George even taught us how to make appam, a popular pancake. We really enjoyed our conversations with George during our meals. He also helped us figure out where and when to get a local ferry and arranged an excellent canoe trip for us. The accommodations were basic but comfortable. All in all, this was an unforgettable experience, that we highly recommend to anyone visiting southern India.
